My camry has had a tough life, its first 5000 miles it was a demo at a dealership in Daytona Florida, then to make it worse, an elderly woman drove it and somehow scraped the trunk, hit the mirror, cracking it. On top of that, where I go to high school, everyone drives their big ass Excursions and crappy cars bought by mommy and daddy, leaving large scrapes and dings on my car. Keep in mind that I have a white camry. Then, somehow, tar got on my hood and roof and tiny light red spots are starting to appear on it (93 camry LE white). Now that im done bitching, what national shops do you think do a good job at painting camrys and how much do u think it would cost.
Thanks,
John

Whoa. There really aren't any good national paint chains.

Maaco has cheap shitty ones which are like 400 bucks.
Dealerships are good but they charge the shit out of you.

I'd say you look around your area. Search and find out what kind of things you have to make sure they include in the paint job. They should be like 1000-2000 USD. Very expensive, and it could be even more.:eek:

A Bad paint job makes a lousy first impression. First impressions are hard to shake.The paint chains or the $399 paint jobs are like that.They tack on dent repairs etc, so the price ends up higher.
Then you find overspray everywhere, bad masking jobs etc.
Clearcoat is extra, ends up being not so good a deal.
Got to make a choice here, spring $1200 or live with it.
Given that choice, I won't paint my car white again. I would paint it something other than a factory color for max effect.

I don't bash noobs 'cause I have kids. I am used to questions. Even if some of it is inane, as long as there is genuine interest there is nothing wrong in asking. It would be nice if noobs did a little research first I agree, but many are not aware of what to search for. If it bugs ya, skip the post.

One piece of advice to new users;
To get to an answer, you must first know the question.
